It was brilliant to work with Dance With The Dead again after our previous video for them, ‘Hex’ became our most viewed music video production to date, racking up over 8 million views on YouTube! The synth metal band continue to go from strength to strength and are now staging epic live performances, most notably a recent appearance at Europe’s biggest metal festival, Hellfest.

For Kiss of the Creature, we designed the video’s narrative around the band’s album cover artwork for their 2022 album ‘Driven To Madness’. We wanted to present the entire video from the first-person perspective of the character in the backseat of the taxi, as depicted on the cover. This required an enormous amount of effort, particularly in the animation department, to give the video a realistic and grounded feel.

A massive thanks to Tony Kim and Justin Pointer for providing another fantastic track for us to create a video for and to all the Dance With The Dead fans who have been so supportive of our work, we really appreciate it.
